This Nordic 32 is fitted with a forward pullman master berth. The bed is a custom fitted spring mattress. Storage below in pull out drawers and open storage access. Port side hanging locker with custom installed shelving for additional storage. Ocean-Air shade/screen for deck hatch.

Just aft on the starboard side is a large head with separate shower stall. The sink and shower faucets/heads have both been upgrades. The head has recently been rebuilt.

The helm area is appointed with full beam bench seating. A custom insert was created to bridge the passage way into the salon. There are flip out foot rests under the seating, in addition to storage drawers. The helm also has a custom filler piece for the forward passage way, allowing for an area to lay charts out while navigating. These two features set Carisma apart from other Nordic 32's and makes the helm station comfortable for more than just the Captain. Custom blinds have been installed that are both tasteful and useful while navigating to block out harsh light. They are movable by fingertip control.

The salon can be turned into a guest bed by pulling out the settee. There have been several custom additions in this area, including a liquor cabinet, flat screen TV installation, and new upholstery recovering.
